On the other hand, not stating that this is the correct side since no one will ever know, I believe that only God should decide when it is someone’s turn to die. I don’t believe that we should have the power to decide one’s fate. An important part to recognize that is not talked a lot about in this topic is that if euthanasia and assisted suicide is illegal, then doctors won’t have the pressure and burden of having to take someone’s life, even if the person wanted it. These people are educated to be doctors, not killers. They are meant to use everything in their power to save patients, not take away their life.
A doctor may have to operate even in the absence of consent, to save the life of the patient. It is possible that even with such an intervention, the patient may not survive. Assuming that the doctor is competent and has exercised due care and diligence, the doctor cannot be held responsible for a patient's death, as the doctor has acted in good faith and in the best interest of the patient. Maintaining a good Doctor patient relationship often works better than the best informed consent! The informed consent issue as discussed is very much driven not by the medical procedure or research being done or what could arise from it.
The idea of duty should also be considered. If a doctor is to do his moral duty, this would be to cure or alleviate pain, and not assist on killing, as that would disregard the doctor-patient relationship and the hippocratic oath they swore to uphold. With today’s growing technology and medical innovation, people suggest that a cure may become available at any time and miracles can happen, and euthanasia would prevent those from happening. With doctors doing everything they can to keep people alive, patients are often left living under machines controlling every organ of their body, even when they’re brain dead. That only because the family members won’t let go and keep on holding on to the little shred of hope that a miracle might
Lister tries to save many patients with antisepsis, but Bliss doesn’t use it which could be the biggest reason Garfield died. Finally, the other doctors are all there to treat Garfield to save him but are shooed away or not given much of a role in his treatment by Bliss. It was the bad intentions of Dr. Doctor Willard Bliss that killed Garfield in the end, but it brought about some much needed change in the country: the President would always be protected while out in public, antisepsis was widely adopted after Garfield’s autopsy revealed Bliss’s numerous mistakes, and President Arthur worked to end the spoils system. Garfield’s death was one that could have been prevented if a man with the right intentions had been in charge of his medical care.
So therefore her defense attorney had a doctor, by the name of Bettye Back, twice hypnotize Vickie Rock to allow her to remember fully what happened the night she killed her husband. During her hypnotic sessions she was unable to remember details of what happened at the time of killing her husband. After her two hypnosis sessions were over she was able to remember distinct details about what had apparently happened during the shooting of Frank Rock, her husband. The prosecutor heard about how the defendant was under a hypnotic state when she was giving her recorded testimony. He ordered a petition to exclude the testimony due to the evidence being inadmissible.

Euthanasia, also known as assisted suicide, is the act of permitting the death of hopelessly sick or injured patients. This is never suggested by the caretaker rather than requested by the patient or their family. Few areas such as the Netherlands have already legalized this practice. This debate, as split as a fork in the road, is over whether or not this approach should be legalized worldwide on stances regarding religion, ethics, and self choice. I see this as being extremely unethical on both religious and social morality levels.
We shouldn 't allow euthanasia under any circumstances. Many would say that it 's the patients call because the patient is the one suffering and the patient is tired and ready to go. I completely understand that someone can be tired of suffering and just want to get it over with and take the easy way out. I in no way shape or form condone in assisted suicide. I strongly believe that it should be against the law in all countries to even allow patients to sign their own death certificate, that is basically what the patient is doing.
INTRODUCTION BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY Today, the topic euthanasia is facing a lot ethical issues; even the mention of the word euthanasia will most likely draw reactions from most people, like abortion, capital punishment, and other issues related to the beginning or end of human life. Although it is often assumed that the modern-day perspective of euthanasia differ from those throughout history, it would seem that the concept of euthanasia has always been the subject of debate (McDougall and Gorman, 2008). The New Oxford Dictionary of English defines ‘euthanasia’ as ‘the painless killing of a patient suffering from an incurable and painful disease or in an irreversible coma’. ‘Euthanasia’ comes from two Greek words, ‘eu-’, a prefix meaning ‘good’ or ‘well’, and ‘thanatos’, meaning ‘death’. Literally speaking, when someone undergoes euthanasia, their death is good.
Among the most controversial dilemmas broadly under debate is the Euthanasia and Patient Assisted Suicide (PAS) due to spreading of these practices even when laws are approved in limited states of United States and countries. The Euthanasia has always being part of our society since this word is derived from ancient Greek. The ancient Greek defined Euthanasia as the “well” or “good” death. The PAS is when a physician assist patient to commit suicide or facilitate death. It means that doctor and patient know and intentionally consent to give and receive a dose to end life mainly driven by a terminal and painful illness.
